Hard Candy, The Bellydance Workout is two candies in one wrapper: A
fitness experience with an artistic edge, and a dance learning
experience with powerful fitness benefits. It's "hard" only if you are a
total beginner in bellydance, but don't worry: We soften it up for you
by teaching every move, step-by-step, in a complete Bellydance Basics
Hard Candy is a three-part program:
The 40-minute Hard Candy Workout;
A 55-minute Bellydance Basics Tutorial, breaking down every move used in the program in complete detail;
A 45-minute Beginners' Practice Flow: A non-stop practice-to-the-music
for every step you learned in the Bellydance Basics Tutorial section.
The Beginners' Practice Flow moves at a slower pace than the Hard Candy
Workout, offering more repetitions of individual moves before developing
them into combinations.
Hard Candy, The Bellydance Workout is a toning, sculpting and
muscle-conditioning workout (not a cardio program) focusing on the hips,
thighs, lower body, and waist. It consists of 100% bellydance steps.
Undiluted by any non-dance fitness movement, Hard Candy retains the
full aesthetics, rich textures, and musicality of bellydance.
The Hard Candy Workout is made of sequences of bellydance combinations
built gradually from basic steps and interwoven to give you a real dance
experience. They follow the music just like real dance, reflecting the
flow of melody, rhythm, and percussive accents.
The first section of the Beginners' Practice Flow offers a breakdown and
practice of all footwork patterns used in the program. The closing
section of the Hard Candy Workout is a review of combinations taught in
the previous sections.
Both the Hard Candy Workout and the Hard Candy Beginners' Practice Flow are offered with two soundtrack options:
With voice cues
With music only
